From October to February the main actor is the red partridge. Between the rocky mountains and the thick bushes, the rapid and nervous flying of this bird is unique. Due to the fact that the drives are always organised in areas with big hills and dense bushes, shooting partridges in El Palomar is really challenging even for the best hunters. Normally we can have at the most 5 drives per day, as the professional beaters have a hard work is the areas with thick bushes. Each drive will take around 30 to 45 minutes, and we try the birds don’t pass over the line all at a time so the hunters keep shooting all the time until the end.
The line should be of a minimum of 6 and maximum of 12 hunters, plus the non-hunters who join the group; and each hunter will have a secretary and a loader who will assist them in all moments during the hunt.
Between the different drives, when the Staff is collecting the birds, a nice snack and drinks will be served.
